Ozone levels for the Louisville metro area are expected to be in the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups range today. Therefore, the Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management have issued an Air Quality Alert (Ozone Action Day). Members of sensitive groups may experience health effects, although the general public is not likely to be affected. Sensitive groups include the elderly, children, persons with asthma or other breathing problems, and persons with lung and heart disease. People in these groups are advised to limit their outdoor activities to reduce their exposure to ozone. You can help the air by following a few simple steps.
- Avoid idling.
- Share a ride.
- Delay your mowing.
- Combine your errands.
